Our Skills Builder & Enabling Enterprise Curriculum
“We focus on building enterprise skills to enable lifelong success so that one day, all students are equipped with the skills, experiences and aspirations to succeed.” Enabling Enterprise
One of our main foci is to prepare our pupils beyond the realm of primary school, opening up opportunities beyond their current life experiences. We do this through our Enterprise Curriculum which brings the world of work into the classroom and provides opportunities to visit an array of employers and have insight to a range of careers.
We believe enterprise skills should be seen as akin to those of literacy and numeracy (and given attention in school accordingly) because they share the same characteristics: they are transferable into other contexts, unlock learning across the curriculum, and are useful throughout life.
We are a partner school with 'Skills Builder & Enabling Enterprise', an award-winning not-for-profit organisation whose programme we follow as part of our developing enterprise curriculum.
Building essential skills.
Our starting point is eight essential skills. Known by many different names, these FRAMEWORK eight skills map across to the four domains that come up time and again as essential whether in the context of education, employment or entrepreneurship . In pairs they cover communication, creative problem-solving, self-management, and collaboration skills. These eight skills are explained in the Skills Builder Framework below.
